Are you going to create a room for people who speak other languages such as Spanish? Or is it mandatory to write only in English?

Thank you

I don't think it's compulsory to speak only the English language here. The only reason English is dominant here is that the majority of users are using English to communicate with one another.  So, if another language should come up they might create a board for them too.

It somehow winds up as the predominant language cause it is the most popular by spread across the globe and not number of users speaking it. Platforms usually use English as the default and the create local boards for the different languages, hopefully we have such boards in the future on uTalk.

why exactly English? would not call it the simplest language

I already explained as best as I could. It is the language with the most spread in the world and also spoken by more than a billion people in the world, along with mandarin, just more common on the different continents.

This is the same reason many other discussion forums are by default using English language rather than others.

Many people seem not to understand English is the default setting in most sites and apps. So it will take a while for it to be able to communicate in other languages. I see the Utopia community moving in that direction.

For that to happen, local boards have to be created, English is the most popular language in the world, that is why it is used for communication in the main boards here, and for now there is no local board, so i think if someone posts a topic or someone replies to a topic with another language other than English, it should be deleted, when there is enough traffic, a few local boards would be created.

I would say many people do if they use most sites and apps and pay attention to the nuances in them.

If there is enough demand for another language then the admins would consider it. For not, I cannot see any language barrier so there is no pressing need now. With more growth we would be moving in that direction.

So, for example, if a lot of Chinese users come, will you allow Chinese too? Isn't it easier and more democratic to keep English?

It's not democratic of you to keep only English and not the two of them. Some people are using Chinese because that's what they understand.  You don't being a sword into a gun fight.  If we're talking about democracy here then we should be able to support both languages.

If a whole lot of Chinese users come to this forum or any other nationality too, and it greatly increases the traffic in the forum, i think the moderators might consider creating a local section for that nationality, and still keep English as the language for the main boards, but if 1 or 2 users from a particular country comes requesting for a local section, i don’t think the admin would listen to them.

If they cannot communicate in English or do not wish to, they can petition the admins to give them a local section, they already have the demand and activity to fill up the board.

This should kick-start the local section as other nationalities move to have their corner where they can discuss in their comfortable language and with people with similar experiences.

That's a good idea.  But don't you think they will feel left out from the main boards?  How about installing translators so they keep everyone together and not making one party left out? It's just a suggestion anyway.

Not at all. They are free to interact in the main boards and also their local boards. I have seen it work in other forums and it does not limit anyone, it instead helps those who cannot speak English fluently.

Translators is not a feasible alternative for the forum.

Re: Only in English?

I hope you guys know that when writing in English as a non-native speaker, you don’t really have to be as fluent as someone who is a native speaker, your words could be laden with errors in both sematics, syntax and the rest of them, but what is most important is that what you have written can be understood. I have read a lot of things written by people who can’t speak English, but i don’t find it too hard to understand what they are trying to say. So have that in mind that your English does not have to be perfect.

Re: Only in English?

Discussions on what language the forum operates in should only come up when a language barrier exists and there are those with no knowledge of the language who cannot communicate on the forum, till then there is no demand for other boards and no discrimination against any group of members.

I would definitely support the creation of local boards when the need arises.

Yes majority of conversations here on the forum is in English that’s quite alright but I think in the near future there should be an implementation of some other language here in the forum.

It is an all English forum for now, and that is because there is no demand for another language, if we suddenly get traffic from people of a particular region that do not speak English, then i think the forum would create a local board for them, so as to accommodate them.

In the future there would be implementation if there is demand for it. When there is a higher presence of non English speakers, there would be a need for provisions for those speakers to communicate with one another.

Till then, the forum is operating quite fine.

Yea for now we have more of English speaking users and we have to respect everyone for now and then later on other languages can be added in.

Re: Only in English?

I don’t think anyone is complaining about language for now, i can only see that there is only one topic like this in the entire forum, so we should not worry about this and just move on. Rome was not built in a day, so the forum devs are taking things one step at a time, once there is demand in large numbers for a partucular thing, then i think they would not hesitate to add it.
